    For those who have asked how this while thing works...

    People who are setting up gear, get there a little early if you can...space if first come first choose, so the best spots go quickly.

    BRING EXTRA POWER STRIPS AND EXTENTION CORDS. You can never have too many and someone will forget one and be in need of borrowing.

    Don't sprawl out all over the tabe...keep it tight...lots of people need to set up.

    Bring a source! iPod, computer, CD Player, turntable, whatever.

    Label your gear! Lots of people may have the same cans or amps.

    It's nice to make up a paper listing exactly what you're showing so others don't have to ask and you'll have more freedom to wander.

    While I've never been to a meet where something was stolen, I'd rather not have my meet be the first. So be aware of your setup or ask the person next to you to keep an eye on it when you go listening or to the bathroom.

    Did I mention to bring extra power strips?



    Those of you who are coming to listen...

    We're thrilled to have you! The head-Fi community is exceptionally welcoming and willing to share. We love showing off our gear and the sound we have achieved.

    We do ask that you be courteous:

    -NEVER unplug headphones with the volume up or the source playing.

    -many of the top headphones are open back...that means we all hear your conversations while we're listening. Remember to use your 'inside voices'

    -Take a shower that morning and wash your ears...you're going to be trying on other people's headphones and others will be wearing yours...it's just commen sense and courtesy.

    -bring your favorite music on your portable audio player...but please ASK the owner of the rig to which you would like to jack in to help you make the connection rather than just unplugging their current source without asking.

    Then just have fun and enjoy the company and the sound!!

    I'll try to make it, have really enjoyed the meet you put on in past years!
    Likely bring my MicroZOTL2 (modded by Mojo Audio) and HE-1000 v2 (always an issue what to use as a source, usually bring some other stuff as well).
    Looking forward to it!
     
  7. ZeosPantera
    Woot. I am down. No telling what I am bringing. Some STAX and some cheap stuff and everything in the middle. Pepperoni for my pizza!

    I'd be interested in making it out for this. I can bring my Elear, not sure what I will have for a dac/Amp by that time. When do you need final confirmation on this.
     
  12. Amphibica
    I plan to attend

    I will bring Audeze LCD2.2
    Peachtree Sona DAC

    AND a power strip!
     
  13. gandhisfist
    Very much looking forward to checking out the soekris AIO. Been eyeing that as a potential purchase.
     
  14. KimbaWLion
    I will be there as usual! It's ALWAYS a good time! :)
    I will bring my usual bag of goodies in an AMP and dac and head headphones as shown below.
    Can't wait!

    Great to see so many returning! Now I need your help. Spread the Word! Tell your local head-fi Friends...and other audiophiles. Let’s show them what this community is all about!!!
